Jared Treasures

Jared Treasures
A little exercise in observation.
On the right, a watercolor version of my little jar of treasures.
A little branch piece covered in yellow lichen from Sweden, pebbles, seeds and tiny shells from Argentina, feathers & some sprigs from Canada,
and a couple of pretty red beans from yesterday's morning walk with Turbo.
Don't know why but I just *love* little things displayed in glass jars.

Eres increible Geninne! Al principio no me explicaba porqué ponías dos botes iguales hasta que reparé en que el de la derecha es ¡¡pintado por ti!!

Te sigo en silencio desde hace muuucho. Me encanta todo lo que haces con tu creatividad y tus manos. Has hecho que desempolve mis brochas y renueve mis secos botecitos de pintura acrílica para volver a pintar.

Gracias por estar ahí y compartir con nosotros tu talento.

Saludos afectuosos :o)

Wow, Geninne,

Some of your heart really blows me away.

This is stunning.

Wow, at first sight I didn't notice the difference. Which keeps me wondering, do you first take a picture and draw from the picture or do you draw from the actual object (the jar) and then try to take a picture form the exact same angle?

So beautiful! What a great idea!

I too am wondering if you take the picture first or just paint from observation.


Great idea Maya! I teach art too and am looking forward to trying this (assuming Geninne's ok with it).

I just love how you break things down into their essential shapes. It teaches me so much to see how you do this through the comparison!

What a gorgeous display both the real and the painted! I would love to see one sea themed with some shells and definitely sea glass inside!Ariadne from Greece!

I also have little jars filled with white sand and shells. They are my memories back in Hawaii. :)

Love these jars. I have several of them and they are beautiful on their own, but I love the idea of adding found objects to them... thanks for sharing. Beautiful work.

I'm with Maya..I teach middle school art and the next time we are doing a still life we are going to put them into glass jars! Great idea:)

Oh my - it took me quite a while to figure out one was real and one was a painting! Awesome job, Geninne!

Beautiful, I almost thought that both were photos. The brown nubbly seeds look like sheeoak ones. The plant is originally from Australia!!

You know I have a bunch of jars that I saved to do something special with. I just couldn't think of anything cool.. until I saw this!

I must do the same. I have a habit too of collecting things on my walks and when camping or walking the beach. This would be a good way to store them like the treasures they are.

So lovely! Cuidado con los 'frijoles rojas' - they look to be from the coral bean (Erythrina sp.), which are native to Mexico and are very poisonous, so don't let Turbo snack on one!

Yo también guardo montones de pequeñas cosas en frasquitos: arena de la playa -tan fina como la harina-, pequeñas conchas, piedrecitas redondeadas, botones de colores... Pero ninguno es tan espectacular como este frasquito que nos muestras. La acuarela es un encanto, una preciosidad. Gracias Geninne. Un abrazo

Gorgeous. But *switches to a whisper* how do you carry your natural treasures across borders? Is Mexico less of a stickler than the US?

I'm living in Australia at the moment and am consistently blown away by the seed pod selection. A collection is being added to an old type case in my studio.

it's so so pretty! and i totally understand your love for little things in jars.

i also like the way you did the jar. i have been playing with that, that is, how to draw/paint glass/jars. this was very inspiring :)

As always your work is amazing! Every time I stop by your blog there is some lovely creation to see. These jars are like little treasure troves to remind us just how wonderful mother nature is. Thank you for sharing it with us.

You are amazingly talented! Your blog is very inspiring, I love your birdies!!! I have been lurking around your blog for some time and finally decided to comment. May I ask if you use glass paints to paint on jars? Lately I have seen *pens* from Pebeo for glass painting, I thought they might work for finer details....hope you don't mind answering. Keep inspiring us!!!
